My first self-portrait here. Nothing amazing, but it does show off the sunlight at that time of day. I figure it's an ok attempt at an entry, since I had an idea and tried it out. Out of 72 shots on my evening drive home from work on Friday (where I was determined to be safe and not pay too much attention to what I was doing with the camera), only 8 seemed like potential candidates, including this one. Most of the 72 shots weren't suitable, as I don't think anybody wants to be looking up my nose, or the camera cast a shadow on my face, or the wonderful light from the sunset just wasn't quite there.

I wonder how many other entries will have a sunrise or sunset reflected in glasses. I'm guessing at least a few...

At first I was thinking the door frame was distracting, but the more I look the more I like it. It adds depth to the scene. The composition is very well done as well, many "sunglass" shots simpley go verticle or full frame the face, but here it tells more story. I like it!

Interesting perspective and I love the reflections captured in the glasses. I quite like your title too.
